QUOTES ON THE PRESENT


Thus we pursue what always flies before;
We disregard the path in which we tread.
JOHANN WOLFGANG VON GOETHE, Iphigenia in Tauris

There is only now and if now is only two days, then two days is your life and everything in it will be in proportion. This is how you live a life in two days. And if you stop complaining and asking for what you will never get, you will have a good life.

ERNEST HEMINGWAY, For Whom the Bell Tolls

Today is only one day in all the days that will ever be. But what will happen in all the other days that ever come can depend on what you do today.

ERNEST HEMINGWAY, For Whom the Bell Tolls
